Project Mind Survey of Israeli Ph.D. Scientists Favors a New Standard of Creativity in Science
Date:7/25/2008

A recent survey on creativity, sponsored by the Jerusalem-based Project Mind Foundation and conducted by TNS Teleseker, revealed that a majority of the Israeli scientists polled expressed a willingness to use special methods that could "put them into a creative state and keep them in this state for as long as desired."

Jerusalem, Israel (PRWEB) July 26, 2008 -- A recent survey on creativity, sponsored by the Jerusalem-based www.projectmind.org [Project Mind Foundation] and conducted by TNS Teleseker, revealed that a majority of the Israeli scientists polled expressed a willingness to use special methods that could "put them into a creative state and keep them in this state for as long as desired." Surprisingly, even when the issue of risk was raised, one fifth of the total sample expressed a medium or high level of willingness to try these methods. More than a third of the sample expressed even a "strong willingness" to use such methods.

The survey, conducted via the Internet, solicited the opinions of over 3,300 Israeli Ph.D. scientists on the subject of creativity. A total of 237 full interviews were conducted.

According to David S. Devor, Chairman of the www.projectmind.org [Project Mind Foundation], the survey was designed to help the organization prepare scientists to generate unusually intense efforts of contemplation. “Such contemplation can lead to enduring states of creative vision, the innovative potential of which cannot be overestimated,” Devor stressed. “Hopefully much, if not all, research now being carried out in the laboratory will someday be done entirely in the mind and vastly accelerate scientific breakthroughs.
